CUSTOMS OFFICIALS HAVE seized approximately 100 litres of counterfeit spirits, a large quantity of wine and the distributor’s vehicle during a planned operation in Dundalk.

Officers from Revenue’s Customs Service valued the haul at €2,625 with a potential loss to the exchequer of €2,200.

A middle aged man from Dundalk was intercepted by customs officers as he was distributing the product which was advertised for sale on Facebook. Investigations are ongoing and a file is being prepared for the DPP.

The alcohol was found to contain high levels of methanol which is very harmful if consumed.
